Momo Foster was born and raised in Houston, TX. And has spent her entire career alongside Entrepreneurs assisting in Operations in multiple successful companies. Very familiar with Group Fitness, starting with vinyl workouts with mom at a young age, she decided to join the GFI Industry in 2015 after discovering POUND, while trying to find something to supplement her alter ego in Roller Derby as Co-Captain, Pivot and Blocker. Momo truly believes in being yourself, loving yourself, loving people and always finding ways to connect with everyone you meet and feels blessed to be able to do that all through POUND!
What are your 3 earliest memories in life?
My first earliest memory would be flying in an airplane with my Mom and 2 older brothers when I was a baby, turned out we were flying to California, it wasn’t till I mentioned it to my mom that I realized it was real and not a dream.
My second memory would be at around age four when my mom bought my first pair of roller skates from a second-hand store. They were blue and red with white stripes and I skated in those things ALL THE TIME, everywhere and my mom let me.
And my third earliest memory would be my kindergarten graduation when my mom had curled my hair. Everyone told me that I looked like Brooke Shields and that was super rad at the time. I also remember holding my alphabet letter upside down in our big graduation performance (true Momo fashion).
What’s the first thing you do when you get home from a trip?
The first thing I do when I get home from a trip is usually have a Potty Party! This is when my 5-year-old daughter, Bauer, and our dog, Pepper, follow me into the restroom (because I always have to pee from drinking so much water) and she gives me the low down on what I missed, and they smother me with kisses. It never fails, and I love it!
If you had two hours left on earth what would you do?
I would have a huge get together to spend time with my family and friends to eat, laugh, drink and be merry!
What activity do you do that makes you feel most like yourself?
Besides POUND, I would say sewing or anything crafty with my hands. I love to sew and create things. I just wish I could make more time for it.
What do you want people to say about you once you’re gone? I would want people to say that I worked hard and with all my heart and tried as much as humanly possible to be Christlike.
How do you show your love for others? I show my love for others by acts of service. I love to do things for people.
What’s one thing you’d tell your 13-year-old self?
One thing I would tell my 13-year-old self would be to love yourself, love who you are and that you are beautiful inside and out and don’t EVER let ANYONE convince you differently, mentally or physically! It seems cliché but at 13, especially girls, you NEED to be told that!
